Beautiful, inviting, thoughtfully arranged class rooms with soft colours and uncluttered spaces set the stage for calm and focused activity in the learning environment. The essence of Dr Maria Montessori’s educational philosophy is the holistic development of the child, and every element of the learning curriculum supports this goal, including the design of the classroom
Learning materials are displayed on accessible shelves fostering freedom of choice as students go about their work. There are well defined spaces for each part of the curriculum such as Language, Sensorial, Art, Math and Culture.
By working in these purposefully designed classrooms, Montessori children are encouraged to develop independence, foster social skills, and find joy in learning.
Class rooms have an area devoted to peace and reflection, a quiet corner with well-chosen items
The Montessori classroom radiates harmony and respect.
Members address each other respectfully and in modulated tones. There are no raised voices; no rude or hurtful behaviour.
There is a busy hum of activity, yet also profound respect for silence. Students show grace and courtesy, and an interest in the welfare of others. “Let me help!” is a common classroom refrain. Students work together as stewards of their environment.
Children take turns caring for classroom plants; do their part to maintain order and help keep outdoor spaces groomed and litter-free.
Notable features that set these learning spaces apart from normal rooms are -
Libraries play a major role in fostering literacy, especially among preschool and elementary-aged children. To inculcate reading habit in the early years MMI has a well-equipped library with books on various topics which include plant life, animal kingdom, transportation, different countries of the World and the Universe. The collection of books enhances the learning in the curriculum and encourages interest in a wide variety of topics. To develop a passion for reading that will last a life time, stories are read out to children and they are helped to make story related craft work.
The Preschool meal plan is designed to provide a wholesome and nutritious diet that ensures the child has boundless energy for the day. Food preferences and food allergies are kept in mind while planning the menu. The meal plan offers a variety of tastes in child sized portions to help children grow up into healthy beings and develop healthy eating habits.
